Digital Editing

Digital editing is actually a group name, for a series of actions which make it possible for your picture to be adjusted for engraving on the mirror.

This editing optimizes the result; to make sure the picture gets engraved at it's best. When the editing is complete, the brightness and contrast are adjusted and the size of the picture is rescaled (enlarged or reduced) to make it fit seamlessly in the designated mirror.

It is also possible to use digital editing for more complex purposes such as;

  • cutting a person out of a picture
  • repairing damaged pictures
  • editing small parts of the picture that need to be altered
  • compressing multiple photos to make one bigger image
  • making collages or any other similar process.



Due to digital photography, most people take a lot of pictures. It is often very hard to find the perfect picture. The picture looks great, but the person being photographed just closed their eyes as the picture was being taken. Sometimes the camera captures something in the picture that reduces the quality of the shot. A family portrait is just not possible because family members live too far away. Or maybe a loved one has passed away and making that perfect picture together just never happened.

Our specialists can often lend a hand using digital editing. Whenever the pictures are suitable, we can merge multiple photographs into one. This actually creates a whole new image. Below some remarkable examples:


What did we do?
First we cropped out each individual and rescaled all pictures to bring more balance to all.

With enhanced photo retouching techniques we took care of the damaged picture (boy in the blue sweater), additionally we enlarged his sweater to make it fit into the new composition.

Finally we ranked all family members in a more natural composition and a due to our team a new family portrait is created.
